Alumni Portraits 

We thought it might be interesting to see what happens 
to people when they leave Kent State — and how it 
happens. The Alumni Association supplied us with the 
names and addresses of a few "notable" graduates 
(whom you may or may not have noticed) and we put our 
inquiries in the mail. 

Among other things, we learned that KSU graduates are 
not necessarily prompt in their correspondence. We also 
received a variety of responses to two basic auestions: 

1. Has your Kent State degree (graduate or 
undergraduate) or experience proven at all helpful in 
reaching your present position? 

2. What was the first job you held after graduation? 
The answers have been printed as we received them. 

There are, of course, graduates pumping gas and 
teaching first graders and working in music stores whose 
lives will never make an alumni bulletin. But it's reassuring, 
somehow, to know that there are business majors running 
their own businesses and history majors playing pro 
baseball. Educational goals can be reached or 
transcended. And, one way or another, there is life after 
college, even when college is KSU. 

My first job and present job of professional baseball is 
fairly unrelated to my history and government degree. 

Pitching to Thurman Munson and throwing to him in 
batting practice was invaluable because after thirteen 
years of pro ball I've yet to throw to a better catcher or 
face a tougher hitter. My Kent State memories are 
intertwined with the way I remember Thurman in school 
and the night after he died when I stood in Yankee 
Stadium and watched a huge crowd give him a fifteen- 
minute standing ovation. 

— Steven Stone Steve Stone received his bachelor's degree in history in 1970. In addition 
to pitching for the Baltimore Orioles and starting in the 1979 All-Star game, 
he is a published poet, a former newspaper columnist, a former junior 
tennis star, a gourmet cook, and the part-owner of six Chicago-area 


1. Yes 

2. My first job was playing organ in chapel, giving piano 
lessons, and serving lunch to fourth grade boys in a 
private school. 

— Dr. Donald Erb 

Donald Erb received his bachelor's degree in music from Kent State in 
1950 and continued his education with a master's degree in composition 
from the Cleveland Instil ute of Music and a doctoral degree from Indiana 
University. In addition to his present teaching responsibilities as Algur H. 
Meadows Professor of Composition at Southern Methodist University, Erb 
has received grants from the Ford. Guggenheim, and Rockefeller 
foundations and from the Ohio Arts Council. A composer of international 
reputation, he has also been instrumental in the development of 
electronic music, collaborating for a time with Robert Moog. designer of 
the Moog Synthesizer. Erb was honored as Kent State's 198 1 Distinguished 
Alumnus on October 9, 1981, during Homecoming Week activities. 


I am in a most unique profession and come in frequent 
contact with executives, presidents, and CEO's of Fortune 
500 companies. Perhaps Pecause I am a woman in a 
predominantly male environment, I am invariaPly asked 
where I earned my degree. I am very proud to reply, "Kent 
State University." I am confident that my degree in Pusiness 
administration can compete successfully with those from 
Harvard, Princeton, or any other prestigious Eastern school. 
There was no facet of Pusiness not fully covered, from 
laPor relations and time and motion study to arPitration. It 
was a highly concentrated and technical exposure. A 
degree in industrial psychology was a Prand new area and 
here again we covered every possiPle facet of industrial 
testing. The faculty was excellent and eager to impart 
knowledge, opening our minds to the possiPilities of the 
future. In short, I found the KSU environment ideal to nurture 
the goals of the future and I've never Peen let down. 

One note of humor in looking Pack: I found it extremely 
hard to get a start. Women were not necessarily 
accepted for long-term opportunities. One of the finest 
companies in Ohio offered me a top position in their 
new industrial testing department. I was offered fifty dollars 

Photo by Lockheed-Georgia Company 
less than all the men with whom I had graduated and 
turned the joP down. They never counter-offered . . . just 
inferred that that was all a woman was worth. 

Going into Pusiness for myself in 1971 was the biggest risk 
of all. If you look at the failure rate, the statistics aren't 
exactly reassuring. Moving to the East Coast really 
escalated my career ... I refused to accept the notion 
that women couldn't make it in top management positions 
and set my goals accordingly. My progress has taken a lot 
of hard work and a can-do attitude. The world doesn't 
come to you, you have to go to it. 

— Janice K. Barden 

Janice Barden was graduated from Kent State in 1949 with degrees in 
business administration and industrial psychology. She now serves as 
president of her own company, Aviation Personnel International, in New 
Orleans, Louisiana, where she uses interviews and psychological testing to 
match pilots and corporate employers. 


My Kent State degree has been very helpful in reaching 
my present position as head football coach at the 
University of Arkansas. The knowledge I received at Kent 
State has been invaluable in progressing in my field. 

My first job after graduation, however, was teaching at 
a grade school military academy in Chicago. It was a very 
long year, and one that looked like an absolute aead end. 
Because of the help I received at Kent State, I was 
awarded a graduate assistantship at Iowa, and from there 
my future has just been fantastic. I have always referred to 
my days at KSU as "fun," and have never regretted my 
decision to attend. 

I do a lot more than just coach football, but have been 
blessed in that respect. 

— Lou Holtz 

Getting a comic strip syndicated is basically dumb luck. 
What can I say . . . 

— Tom Batiuk 

Tom Batiuk received his bachelor's degree in art history in 1969. His comic 
strips, Funky Winkerbean and John Darling (for which he does the 
drawings), are syndicated in newspapers throughout the country. In 
1982, the Funky Winkerbean characters were also featured in Kent 
State's spring schedule of courses book. 

Lou Holtz finished his degree in elementary and secondary education in 
1959. In addition to his coaching at Arkansas, for which he has been 
named Walter Camp College Coach of the Year and the Sporting News 
College Coach of the Year, he plays a competitive round of golf and 
does a good deal of motivational speaking. 


I presume the real question being asked is: did you really 
need an education and did it make any difference that 
Kent State was involved? My answer, on all counts, is a 
resounding yes. 

Obviously, since my field is education, the educational 
preparation I received at both Ohio State 
(undergraduate) and Kent State (two graduate degrees) 
have been important to me and the career opportunities I 
have had or pursued. More importantly, the scope and 
quality of that education has proven to be invaluable as 
my career has progressed. I have been most fortunate in 
being able to maintain a close relationship with the 
University and it continues to provide experiences which 
broaden and enhance both my personal and professional 

I would not change any of the experiences I have had, 
for they are the things which have made me who I am. I 
particularly treasure many of my Kent State experiences as 
I feel a great sense of impact which those experiences 
have had upon my life. 

The road to achievement is defined in three stages: 
perceiving, believing, and becoming. A Kent State 

professor, Dr. Robert E. Wilson, initiated my first perceptions 
of obtaining a Ph.D. His belief augmented mine in the quest 
and I did, in fact, become. Without that individual interest 
and assistance, my career would have been very different. 
I am indebted to Dr. Wilson and others and to Kent State 
University for more than just a formal education. 

— Dr. Robert W. Evans 

Robert Evans received a master's degree in education in 1966 and 
completed his studies for a doctorate in educational administration in 
1973. He presently serves as assistant superintendent of public education 
for the state of Ohio.

My education at Kent State University, not only in the 
classroom, but the entire academic experience, prepared 
me well for a career in the United States Air Force. While 
many facets of university life contribute to the molding of 
one's life, it was the personal associations with several key 
individuals at Kent State that had the greatest influence on 
my life. Most notable was Dr, George A. Bowman, 
president of the University at the time I was student body 
president. He impressed upon me a set of personal values 
that I still attempt to follow. Key to those values are 
people. The consideration of people and their needs in 
accomplishing objectives became the hallmark of a 
leadership approach that had its beginnings at Kent State. 

While attending the University, I was instilled with a desire 
to make a lasting contribution to our society. I chose a 
career in the U.S. Air Force as the vehicle for that 
contribution. Since the beginning of my active service, I 
have come to respect and admire the profession of arms, 
not because of its inherent power to wage war, but 
because of its oft-forgotten ability to deter Conflict and 
preserve the peace. 

In my present position as the Air Force special assistant 

for development of the M-X missile system, I am 
confronted with many technical and management 
challenges every day. Congressional testimony in support 
of a two billion dollar budget for this program places a 
significant demand on my ability to communicate the 
needs of the Air Force to various congressional leaders. My 
ability to fulfill presidential directives relative to the 
program is directly related to the principles of 
management that I have developed over the years. In 
short, my ability to contribute to our nation and its security 
can be traced back to the values and ideals that were 
born out of my experience at Kent State.

General McCarthy earned a bachelor of science degree in journalism 
from Kent State in 1957. In Washington, he oversees the programmatic, 
technical, environmental, and budget requirements of the M-X program 


Julia Walsh received her master's degree in business administration in 
1945. In subsequent years, she has been the first woman accepted and 
graduated from the Advanced Management Program at the Harvard 
Graduate School of Business, the first woman member of the American 
Stock Exchange, the first woman from the securities business to take a 
seat as a director of a stock exchange, and the first woman to chair a 
standing committee of the National Chamber of Commerce board of 
directors. Today, Mrs. Walsh is the principal owner of Julia M. Walsh and 
Sons and a panelist on public television's nationally syndicated Wall 
Street Week. 

There is an oft-told tale about a comment made to a 
successful person, that he had been successful because of 
his remarkably good luck. The person replied that the 
comment was true and, furthermore, the harder he 
worked, the luckier he got. 

I agree with the implication of the story, that a person 
makes his own luck. However, I also believe that pure, 
unadulterated luck can affect a person's life very 

Much of my success must be attributed to the good luck 
I have enjoyed. First of all, my decision to attend Kent 
State University was a lucky one. I had no way of 
predicting the opportunities I would be given and the 
excellent preparation I would get. Upon entering college 
my plans were somewhat vague; I intended to prepare 
myself to have the option of a career outside the home, 
but my field was uncertain. My good luck continued; 
although female graduates in business administration were 
rare, one of my teachers, Professor Kochendorfer, 
persuaded me to major in international business with a 
minor in personnel management. Then I had the good 
fortune to come to the attention of Dr. K.C. Leebrick, 

Photo by Image 

president of KSU at the time. He selected me to represent 
the University at student conferences in Asheville, N.C., and 
Washington, D.C. There I met Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, a 
woman I already admired. She inspired me to extend my 
reach and to defy conventions that restrict enterprise. 

When I graduated in the spring of 1945 my luck held. I 
was hired by the Foreign Service Division of the State 
Department in Washington, D.C. My timing was perfect. 
After I had received a year of training and experience, I 
was chosen to be the personnel officer for our Munich 
Consulate when it was reopened in the spring of 1946. The 
training I received at Kent State was directly applicable. 

In 1958, the death of my husband forced me to reenter 
the business world after ten years as a wife and mother. 
Because of my business training, I was able to enter the 
male-dominated world of the stock market with 
confidence that I could compete. My subsequent success 
in making a living, participating in some firsts for women in 
my field, and in establishing my own company I attribute to 
the start that I got at Kent State University . . . and, of 
course, to my own hard work. 

— Mrs. Julia M. Walsh 



My KSU experience was the foundation of my career as 
the political cartoonist for the Akron Beacon Journal. 

Obviously the initial benefits are the institutional ones: 
the development of artistic skills as a graphic design major 
and broadened horizons through a solid liberal arts 

Beyond these benefits, I include the exposure to an 
intellectually stimulating environment. This was intensified 
by the fact that it occured during the Vietnam War era, 
with its heightened political awareness. 

Finally, the experience of working as a cartoonist for the 
Daily Kent Stater for more than two years proved to be a 
great asset. While not political in nature until after the May 
4, 1970, incident, this work helped develop the format and 
style I would use later with my political cartoons. In 

addition, this experience came at the same time I began 
working part-time for the Beacon Journal as a staff artist. 
The value of producing drawings for two newspapers at 
the same time cannot be overstated. 

I am convinced that without the experiences I 
encountered while a student at Kent State, I would not be 
where I am today. 
— Chuck Ayers 

Chuck Ayers was graduated from Kent State In 1971 with a degree in 
graphic design. In 1970 he received a Pulitzer Prize nomination for his 
treatment of the May 4 incident. Since graduation, Ayers has served as 
political cartoonist for the Akron Beacon Journal and his Daily Kent Stater 
cartoons have been collected by Anita and Leigh Herington in the book 
Chuck Takes a Look at KSU.

What were your thoughts and feelings at the moment 
you learned you had received a Distinguished Teaching 

Surprise, joy, gratitude — I guess that sums it up. I was 
stunned because I had pretty much abandoned any hope 
of ever winning such an award. After all, we have so many 
fine teachers at Kent and many far better than I, Besides, I 
haa just become Honors Dean, and I figured that that had 
put me on the wrong side of a gulf which exists between 
students and teachers on the one hand and administrators 
on the other. 

I was elated because like most of my colleauges I aefine 
myself as a teacher. It's funny how so many professors — 
with so many demanas and rewards for other things, like 
publishing and administration — continue to see 
themselves as teachers first and foremost. I think this is so 
whether they are objectively poor, middling, or good at

teaching. Hardly anything else can cut so deeply as the 
recognition or the neglect of the thing by which one 
defines himself. That's why I felt like leaping three or four 
feet off the ground. And that's why, once I had the plaaue 
in hand, people had to remind me to go get my check. 
The gratitude part is easy to explain. Your heart goes 
out to students. Of course, you are grateful to the specific 
few over the years who cared enough to nominate you 
for such an honor, but you also feel the long-standing debt 
to all the good students you've ever had. A good class 
can make you teach over your head, and a bad, lethargic 
one can destroy your mind and morale and make you wish 
you were selling prunes or something, God bless all good

Dean, Honors and Experimental College and 

Professor of English 


My initial reaction to the announcement concerning the 
Alumni Distinguished Teaching Award was quite 
predictable. I felt both elated and honored by this 
recognition from my former students. In retrospect I must 
say that I was also somewhat surprised to receive the 
award. I do not regard myself as a particularly popular 
teacher. My discipline, physical chemistry, does not readily 
lend itself to popularization. It also can not be easily related 
to contemporary issues or the Zeitgeist. I have not studied 
pedagogy nor do I make use of visual or mechanical 
teaching aids. 

Since receiving the teaching award I have asked myself, 
"what is good teaching?" Perhaps more to the point is the 
question "what is good learning?" Teaching is merely an 
occupation but learning can be exciting and a great 
satisfaction. It also requires hard work. I believe that we 
may be losing sight of this truism in view of the vogue for 
making college subjects "easier" and therefore more 
"appealing." At the University, good learning requires 

sufficient knowledge of the subject to allow one to think 
independently and to have original ideas. My aim in 
teaching is to motivate the students to do the hard work 
required to achieve this level of learning, I also believe that 
a teacher of the sciences should be doing research. 
Among other things, research requires a thorough 
knowleqge of the discipline and of its recent advances. 
Students are inspired and motivated by a teacher who 
knows his subject well. 

The aim of higher education is to transfer the best of our 
knowledge to the young. This is surely one of the most 
important functions of a civilized society. I enjoy teaching 
because I feel that I play a small part in this process. The 
honor of this award has been deeply gratifying to me, not 
so much as an achievement, but as recognition for doing 
well that which I truly enjoy. 

Dr. Vernon D. Neff, 
Professor of Chemistry 


How would you compare your coaching and teaching 

After twenty-two years of coaching and teaching 
gymnastics at Kent State University, I can make the 
following observations: 

The coach must display the fruits of his labor to the 
public. The performance of his athletes, his win-loss record, 
the eligibility of his team members and their academic 
standing, and their ability to graduate and find 
employment are always open for public inspection and 
criticism. Teaching is based on a less extensive experience 
with the students. You give them all you can, but you 
cannot personally see whether or not each passes, fails, 
graduates, or gets a job. 

Coaching fosters the development of close ties with the 
team members, as the coach spends many hours working 
with each individual — in many cases, for a period of four 
years! Through the years, the coach and his athletes will 
share many experiences: the big win, the heartbreaking 
loss, the long trips, and the like. But it is through these 
experiences that a life-long friendship is formed between 
coach and athlete, a friendship that will continue after 

Colin Klein 

graduation and on through weddings, godchildren, 
baptisms, and birthdays. Unfortunately, for the most part, 
this is not the case with the classroom student. Time does 
not permit the development of deep friendships and the 
teacher must, therefore, deal with students on a much 
more impersonal level. 

The technical aspects of instruction in coaching and 
teaching are much the same, though the means of 
assessing progress are somewhat different. In coaching, 
the athletes must perform or display the products of their 
training before the public. In teaching, the student may be 
given a written exam, a particular skill test, or he may strive 
purely for his own self-improvement and knowledge, but 
his results are not made known to the public. Despite these 
differing means of evaluation, the goals of teaching and 
coaching are one and the same: to increase the 
enjoyment and knowledge of an activity and to 
encourage appreciation of that area of endeavor

Associate Professor of Physical Education and

As a professor-turned-administrator, can you ever fully 
turn your back on teaching? 

Teaching, research, public service — these three thrusts 
of a public university's goals also represent the diverse 
choices for the professional staff of a university. Each 
individual fits somewhere along the spectrum 
encompassed by these goals. The breadth of this 
spectrum provides some opportunities for university faculty 
members to explore different emphases during their 
careers. Through service on various committees, as 
assistant chairman in the department of physics, as 
director of summer sessions, and in talks presented to off- 
campus groups, I have uncovered my own interest in 
service not limited to the classroom. 

My first love at the University has been classroom 
teaching and I do not intend to leave it completely. I have 
felt the excitement of trying to uncover new ways to 
present material and of occasionally discovering — in or 
out of class — a more versatile or more illuminating 
explanation. The attendant satisfaction of seeing students 

"take hold" at one of these inspired moments is, I suspect, 
unmatched in almost any other profession. 

The administrator, too, faces challenges of service. The 
blend of repeated chores arising on a relatively 
anticipated schedule plus the much less predictable 
problems, guestions, and special assignments combine to 
yield a challenging, sometimes frustrating, often rewarding 

The faculty member and the administrator each have 
the common opportunity — indeed, the responsibility — to 
make a positive difference in the lives of others. And I 
believe that there exists no better background for a 
university administrator who is directly concerned with 
academic programs than the background of serving as a 
university faculty member. When the two areas can be 
combined to some degree, then one indeed may 
experience, at least at times, the best of both worlds.

Associate Dean, College of Special Programs

How would you assess the current attitude of American 
society toward the educational system it has created? 

Universal public education is America's best investment 
in itself. It is grounded in faith, the belief that ignorance is an 
impediment to the individual's right to grow. It is an avenue 
or approach to realizing Jefferson's natural aristocracy, 
one of merit, ability, and accomplishment. It is wealth- 
producing, hence the irony of the refusal of the people of 
Ohio to support it to the extent feasible. 

Attacks upon public education stem from a certain 
meanness of spirit, notable in recent years, and from a 
certain lack of faith in education for all people. These 
attacks are, I believe, only thinly veiled attacks upon 
democracy itself. One must not be blind to problems within 
the schools and universities. But these problems are not 

Chris Russell 

indigenous to the idea of public education. They stem from 
simple lack of financial support, maladministration of 
resources, and from what seems to be a recurring lack of 
respect for teachers. Those of us who have taught at Kent 
State sense these circumstances, but we believe in our 
vocation, we are constant, we do insist that "wisdom 
excelleth folly, as light excelleth darkness." We know that 
a society that believes in education is one that truly loves 
its children. Public education is an attitude even more than 
a system. That the editors of the yearbook have chosen to 
acknowledge the faculty is encouraging. I hope that when 
you consider your years at Kent, you believe that we kept 
the faith in ourselves and in you.

Associate Professor of History

Until recently the rise ot the American public school 
system had been generally regarded as a success and a 
significant achievement. It was unique in establishing a 
secondary education based less openly on class 
distinctions than European education and providing even 
more access to educational opportunity through flexible 
programs of higher education. It was said to be the leveler 
which would make upperward social mobility possible and 
which would aid the immigrant in adjusting to American 
culture. The free common school brought together all the 
children of all the people, teaching them to cooperate 
with concern for all the public good, and having as its first 
priority the values of a free democratic society. 

In recent years, however, public education has found 
itself caught in the crosscurents of conflict and 
controversy, and attacked by groups holding opposing 
viewpoints. A number of revisionist historians of education 
have charged that the public schools have never lived up 
to their promise, that they have, in fact, been a 
purposeful, intentional failure. These critics see the public 
school as a bureaucratic, racist institution designed to 
perpetuate the class struggle by maintaining the status 
quo, imposing middle class values on the poor, and 
directing them into vocationalism, which in effect tracks 

them within the school. 

Other, more conservative, groups regard compulsory 
education as an invasion of privacy and charge that the 
public school has failed to preserve traditional values. Thus, 
the current free school movement does not refer to a 
tuition-free public school, but rather a school to which 
parents are free to send their children. It represents an 
anti-public school movement. Some also oppose the 
desegregation of the public school and seek to weaken 
the constitutional mandates which separate church and 

The challenge of American public education is to 
provide universal education while maintaining its quality. 
No one should ever have to remove their children from a 
public school because it is an inferior school. The solution 
would seem to be, not to desert the public school, but 
indeed to correct any weaknesses and strengthen it. In this 
way, the public education needed to promote the core 
values of the society, which are rooted in the ideals of 
liberty, equality, and justice, will bolster and sustain the 
democratic political community itself. 

Dr. Harris L. Dante, 
Professor of Secondary Education and History 


How does the modern European education compare in 
kind and quality to the education currently received by 
students in the United States? 

I was trained as a journalist and writer in Europe in an age 
in which European education was predominantly 
humanistic and the American tended to Pe more and 
more technical. Today the European education is rapidly 
becoming technical and is renouncing its humanistic bases. 

During the twenty years that I have been teaching in 
universities, I have seen the level of university education 
decline. I believe that the system of secondary education 
is responsible for this decline; it is one that has deteriorated 
rapidly throughout the world, one that sends students to 
the university without intellectual curiosity, without cultural 
ambition, and "information-free." 

Although Europe has the advantage of a more 
humanistic secondary education, more strict than the 
American, also in Europe secondary education has 
declined very much and, as a consequence, the university 
education is also declining. It can then be considered a 
universal phenomenon in the industrial world. The massive 
use of computers and audio-visual media makes the crisis 
worse because they destroy the language, the enjoyment 

Dave Maxwell 

of reading and writing, the sense of beauty in 
communication, and the individual initiative of the student. 
The American university, however, is more open and 
warmer than the European, and in it there is a closer 
relation between faculty and students, but this relationship 
is also deteriorating. 

Today Poth European and American universities can be 
considered glorified vocational and high schools. Real 
university work is only developed at the graduate level. It 
seems to me that the lesson derived from all of this is clear: 
the university must re-establish a rigid system of selection, 
necessarily related to a more extensive program of 
scholarships, in order to force secondary education to get 
rid of its complacent mediocrity. At the same time the 
university must produce primary and high school teachers 
capable of arousing in the students their curiosity about 
culture and general information and their interest in foreign 
languages and must give them the conviction that the 
individual is educated for life and not for a specific

Do the educational needs of black students differ from 
those of white students? 

During the recent months there has developed a 
controversy over what is a fitting liberal education for 
university students. We often times hear that what is 
educationally proper for white students is by definition 
improper for African-American students. Although there is 
some truth in this premise, it is basically false. I contend that 
all students are not being properly educated. 

Basic to the problem is the corruption of the learning 
process into one that trains people for jobs as if that were 
the entire raison d'etre of a university education. Some 
educational administrators invariably use the number of 
students who have been placed in jobs or have gone to 
graduate school to assess the quality of their enterprise. 
Since racism abounds in the United States and since the 
nation always seems to side with despotic regimes and 
denigrate democratic governments when it suits the 
nation's objectives, it is correct to ask what is higher 
education's role in setting right the ethical and moral 
attitudes of America's youth. For should the enterprise 

continue to give short shrift to these concerns, we will 
continue to experience the evils of cultural solipsism, the 
arrogance of power, and the oppression of darker peoples 
for economic advantage. 

Some of the courses which form the general education 
requirements of universities predispose students to the 
negatives mentioned above and perpetuate many of the 
unethical values which inform the nation. It would seem 
that all that is worthy of study and appreciation originates 
in either Europe or America. Little consideration is given to 
non-Western civilizations from which Western societies 
have borrowed. If this were an all white nation, which it is 
not, we could understand this solipsistic approach to 
education. The facts, however, suggest that given the 
large variety of non-European cultures represented in the 
American crucible, educators and educational institutions 
must revamp their curricula to stave off criticism that the 
entire system fails to work for African Americans.

In the 1969 film The Graduate, Dustin Hoffman was given 
a one-word piece of advice for his future; that word was 
"plastics." How would you assess the soundness of this 
advice in 1982? 

Occasionally I ask beginning design classes two 
questions regarding plastic. When was plastic invented? 
And what is the definition of the word "plastic?" The 
responses usually indicate that plastic was invented in 1950 
and that it can be defined as a "cheap substitute." Rarely 
is anyone aware that the first modern plastic, celluloid, was 
developed in 1869 and that "plastic" is derived from the 
Greek word "plastikos," which means "capable of being 

When I introduce this subject, I suspect I am thought to 
be a representative of the chemical industry. However, 
plastic is one of many materials which is used and must be 
understood in industrial design, the profession which I 
practice and teach. It must also be understood that the 
primary purpose of the designer is to solve problems 
objectively and innovatively. This usually results in 
esthetically satisfying, economical tools for living which do 
not intrude negatively into the environment of the user. 

Colin Klein 

The fact that most of the objects designed are produced 
in quantity makes repetition an esthetic element which 
must be used properly. 

Sculptural forms in plastic are often viewed as solid. This is 
seldom true, as they usually house the functional elements 
of products. Solid forms are often too heavy; they may 
also waste material and raise production costs. These 
problems are conveniently solved through the use of 
plastic shells. The aspect of plastic that is most often seen 
as negative is its nonbiodegradability. Medically, however, 
this makes some plastics, which are inert, extremely 
valuable as life-saving replacement body parts. 

It is extremely important for designers to learn about 
plastics and all other materials and to take an objective 
approach to all design problems. Designers must use 
materials and processes based on appropriateness 
considering positive and negative aspects. The result 
should be a product of value to its user, should provide 
economic reward to its manufacturer, and in many cases, 
should deserve classification as art.

What bearing do your extra-curriuclar activities have 
upon your performance as a teacher? 

For me, directing and acting in University Theatre 
productions provide an interesting and rewarding 
experience that supplements and compliments my 
traditional responsibilities in the classroom. 

During my nearly thirty years at Kent State, I have 
directed approximately two productions per year. These 
experiences have been both personally satisfying and an 
invaluable aid to the teaching of young directors. With 
each assignment the problems to be solved and the ideas 
to be explored have been unique. Over the years it has 
been possible to draw upon these experiences and share 
them with students who are undertaking their initial 
directing responsibilities. 

Likewise, occasional opportunities to perform as an 
actor are invaluable to the teacher of acting. Those who 
are called upon to develop a believable character from 
the material given to them by the playwright, and to draw 

upon their own limited personal experiences in order to 
make that character their own, are probably the most 
insecure of human beings. A director and teacher of 
acting must be able to lessen this insecurity, provide 
encouragement, and keep the actor moving toward his 
goal — a successful performance. This can best be 
accomplished if the one guiding has been over the same 
(or a similar) route himself. 

As a student actor I enjoyed performing, but my richest 
performance experiences have come as a teacher who 
undertakes an occasional opportunity to perform with 
students and faculty colleagues. The gruelling experience 
of study, rehearsal, and performance are relived and I 
depart from each experience with a revived and 
renewed appreciation of the time, effort, and talent 
required to bring a performance to fruition.

Do you see any connection between your work as a 
communication scholar and your work as a blues 

Yes. I believe that the social sciences must not restrict 
themselves to studying things from the point of view of 
outside observers; they should strive for knowledge that 
accounts for the ways things appear to individuals in 
situations under study. This is particularly important in 
democratic societies, in which a primary goal of the social 
sciences should be increased collective — not 
authoritarian — control. 

This means that social scientists must be able to take the 
point of view of the individuals they observe, and account 
for situations in terms that incorporate both the individual's 
and the outside observer's perspectives. 

Dave Maxwell 

This belief in the importance of the individual's point of 
view instructs much of the work I do as a communication 

Blues music proceeds from the point of view of the 
individual. Many blues songs are simply an exploration of 
some situation as it appears to some singer, an attempt to 
gain or express control through first-person analysis. 

My research and my music are related in that both are 
concerned with understanding things as they appear to 
the individual. I think that all the work I do is somehow 
concerned with this — making sense of things — either 
through science or through art.

Assistant Professor of Journalism 


Is purely electronic music, which sounds so strange and 
unmusical to many listeners, the popular style of the 
future, or will it remain the style of the initiated few? 

The inventions which made possible the earliest 
examples of electronic music were sound storage systems 
which were developed early in the century but which are 
still well known to us today: the phonograph and the tape 
recorder. The tape recorder provided for not only the 
recording of sound for playback at a later time, but also 
for the transformation of recorded sound. Several 
instruments which actually generated electronic sounds, 
such as the Ondes Martenot, the Theremin, and the 
electronic organ, were also introduced during the first half 
of the century. More recent developments include the 
highly influential synthesizer designed by Robert Moog in 
the 1960's and the digitally-controlled synthesizer. (One of 
Moog's first synthesizers was installed in the KSU 
electronic music studio, where it is still in regular use.) During 
the last decade, electronic music has become more and 
more prevalent, being found in rock music, in jazz, in film 
music, and on television as well as in classical music. Thus, 
although electronic music has been with us for many years, 

many people have encountered it only recently. 

Study of the history of music indicates that Western 
music has always been in a state of change, sometimes 
gradual and sometimes quite rapid. The 20th century has 
been a period of rapid change. Many composers have 
found that electronic music provides the material they 
need to express their new musical ideas most effectively. 
The developments in technology have corresponded to 
the aesthetic changes in music. 

It is evident that electronic music will not replace music 
produced by more traditional means. Electronic music is a 
new sound source, one which provides many new musical 
possibilities, but which does not impose its own style or 
aesthetic upon the composer. Electronic music has 
established its place in our musical life just as the strange 
new instrument called the piano established its place in 
the musical life of the late 18th century. Perhaps as the 
years pass more people will find the sounds of electronic 
music less strange, more natural and musical.

Assistant Professor of Music 


How would you, as a psychologist, explain 
contemporary forms of humor? 

This does not seem like an earth-shaking guestion, to be 
sure, and it is not a guestion that psychology spenas very 
much effort on. With a multitude of more serious problems 
to worry about, the intensive study of humor might garner 
a truckload of Senator Proxmire's Golden Fleece Awards. 
However, like many former Golden Fleece Awards, an 
Award for the study of humor could be misplaced. Humor 
just might have a very serious side 

What makes us laugh? Look at the comic strips, listen to 
comic monologues, recall your own repertoire of jokes, 
and (if you have the stomach for it) watch some sitcoms. 
Humor covers a lot of topics and, at first, there may seem 
to be no unifying threads. But look more closely. One 
theme that appears a lot is sex. Remember the TV show 
"Three's Company?" Much of its humor is based on sexual 
innunedo. Sexual exploits, misunderstandings, and put- 
downs are a rich source of humor. 

Another source is incompetence. For some reason, it can 
be funny when people are portrayed as blundering, 
foolish, weak, or naive. A great deal of humor is of this sort. 

Dennis Monbarren 

Consider the misaaventures of the hapless Ziggy, the 
clumsiness of the Three Stooges, and the nonsense of Jerry 
Lewis. We enjoy ineptitude. 

Ethnic jokes are a notorious source of humor that acts by 
degrading some group of people. We can also get 
amusement by documenting — or imagining — the 
weakness of those in power. And finally, we learn that we 
can get laughs by poking fun at ourselves. How many 
comedians make their living by this ploy? How many 
politicians use it to warm up a hostile audience? 

Sigmund Freud suggested that much humor expresses 
for us in a socially acceptable way things that we cannot 
express directly. We can't, for example, attack those in 
power without great risk, but we can make fun of them. By 
this theory, a person's tastes in humor may tell us 
something about him, perhaps something he aoesn't 
recognize about himself. So humor can have a serious side. 
Of course, worrying too much about its serious side may 
also tell us something about ourselves. How are university 
professors like hippopotami? 

— Dr. Benjamin Newberry, 
Associate Professor of Psychology 


Colin Klein 

How do you, as a sociologist, see humor being used in 
American society? 

There are serious, sobering, and often tragic actions and 
reactions in American society. There is need to address 
these interactions and their products in thoughtful, 
conscientious ways. Sociologists are among those who 
attempt to perform in such a manner that all those 
affected by American society will emerge happier, 
healthier, more constructive and fulfilled persons. That we 
fall short of these ideals is understandable, but this 
constitutes no excuse for not even trying to reach them. 

Americans have been confronted with unique 
circumstances in building their society. They have 
demonstrated all the weaknesses and strengths of 
humanity as they have drawn upon the world's heritages. 
Humor plays a major role in all this, albeit one that is, at 
times, forgotten by some, lost to others, and undervalued 
by too many. There is need to experience the joys of 
learning, not to be entertained but to surround the 
acquisition of knowledge with pleasure and not pain. 
Certainly there are dull, routine, and prosaic tasks to be 

performed, but there are also the joys of life to be savored 
because they help us endure. 

Humor is a fundamental means of survival. It seeks to be 
a social corrective so that Americans can confront 
realities rather than be satisfied with lip-service to 
proclaimed ideals. Humor enables us to see the 
incompleteness of our collective efforts to build a society 
that truly appreciates the dignity and worth of all 
individuals. Humor allows us to laugh, even when things go 
wrong, and, consequently, to move on to a brighter 
future. Humor is thus the social grease which allows us to slip 
past the grinding gears of society. 

In humor, there is always a sender and a receiver. Humor, 
to be received as intended, requires kindred souls. Thus, 
humor can be used to continue to divide people or to 
bring them closer together. To reject humor is to signal 
that senders and receivers are far apart. To share laughter 
is to forge a strong social bond. 

— Dr. Marvin R. Koller, 
Professor of Sociology 


How did you get where you are today (wherever that may 

Many people spend the greater part of their lifetime seek- 
ing fulfillment or something they really enjoy doing. Some 
people never find it. Others never look, thinking it will just 
"happen." Some pursue a number of interests, never set- 
tling on any one in particular. 

I was fortunate to find, very early in life, something worth 
all the study, struggle, and frustration it took to achieve 
some proficiency in it. My pursuit of a dance career began 
at age three and a half, and took me from local dancing 
school recitals in New Jersey to one of the best professional 
schools in the country. I attended three universities, innumer- 
able special courses, master classes, and conventions. I 
continue to take class daily, whenever possible. 

I have performed and taught across the country at presti- 
gious academies, elementary schools, and summer camps. 
All of my study, academic and physical, all of the music 
concerts I've attended, the plays I've seen, and the 
galleries I've visited have contributed to my career. These 
are the things that have prepared me for the position I 
hold here at Kent. 

As far as why I should single out the University as a place to 
practice my career, the reasons are two. The first is Universi- 
ty support. It gives me classroom space, rehearsal time, a 
theatre, and perhaps even a production budget. It also 
encourages research, which is, in this case, performance- 
related. Second, and more important, the University pro- 
vides me with students who are in college, for the most part, 
because they want to be there and not because they have 
to be. 

College is, after all, about broadening oneself and finding 
a major or area of interest that is particularly meaningful to 
the individual. It provides one with the basic tools and pro- 
cesses necessary to begin and continue the pursuit of that 

So I've come full circle. I got here by developing the skills 
necessary to build a career doing something I thoroughly 
enjoy. In my teaching, I try to help others do the same, no 
matter what their interest is.

Instructor of Physical Education, Dance

Dennis Monbarren 

I have been asked, "How did I get to where I am 
today?" An obvious, albeit simplistic, answer would be 
"through hard work." But that would obscure the picture. 
Specifically, I should point out that at the age of fourteen 
(and please don't ask me how) I took the initiative to 
compose for myself a philosophy of life: namely, everything 
that happens to me happens for the better, although at 
the time I may not see why. 

Having endured the disappointing loss of a scholarship to 
Johns Hopkins University and a junior executive position with 
a Baltimore company, I enlisted for four years in the United 
States Air Force. There I learned that racism has little, if any, 
respect for patriotism. After being honorably discharged I 
pursued a future as a detective in the narcotics unit of the 
Baltimore City Police Department. I saw the depth and 
depravity to which the human spirit can sink. When I had to 
arrest a gentleman who held a master's degree in 
chemistry, I decided to see what the education which he 
had so debased was all about. 

My foremost ambition was to teach English on the high 
school level. However, my color barred my entrance to 
certain white colleges and I remained a police officer for 

another two years. I decided to reapply for admission to 
college when I noticed that police work was causing the 
animal in me to surface, and this time I was accepted to 
Morgan State College. The fear of failure made me work 
diligently and each semester found my name on the 
Dean's List. But more important were the few professors I 
met who inspired me to reach for the superlative in life and 
taught me the value of dedication, application, and even 
friendship in teaching as well as in daily experience. 

Without these models and my own sound philosophy, I 
doubt I could have persevered through graduate school. 
As it was, everything happened for the better. A university 
scholarship which someone had declined made it possible 
for me to apply to the Ph.D. program in literature and the 
rest is history. I have reached and even surpassed my 
educational goal and my self-image has never been 
better. In the classroom, I seek to encourage and inspire 
students to nurture a positive self-image and to aspire to 
be the "best" at whatever vocation they choose.

Brage Golding, 1977-1982 

What kind of a man would jump to the helm of a sinking 
ship? Who would trade the sunny shores of San Diego for 
the stormy skies of the North Coast? Perhaps a man who 
loved living recklessly would succump to these 
temptations, perhaps a thrill-seeking fool. But could these 
descriptions Pe applied to Dr. Brage Golding? Judging from 
his no-nonsense approach to running Kent State University 
for the last five years, one would be inclined to say no. 
Judging from his many accomplishments and the proPlems 
he has chosen to face, however, one would admit that 
President Golding has lived life with the energy of a man 
who wants to change the world. 

He was born in Chicago in 1920. Young Brage Golding 
attended the Oak Park/River Township High School outside 
Chicago until he entered the Purdue School of Chemical 
Engineering in 1938. Returning to Chicago to work on his 
master's degree, President Golding was called to active 
auty from advanced ROTC training the night he was to Pe 
married . . . DecemPer 7, 1941. Four and one half years 
later he returned from overseas to earn his doctorate, 
After working as the head of research for an industrial 
finishing corporation for eleven years, Dr. Golding was 
invited back to his alma mater as the dean of the 
Chemical Engineering school. In 1966 he was asked to be 
the first president of the then infant Wright State University. 

Dr. Golding claims that he would never have accepted 
the position had the school not Peen brand new. At the 
time, he had the naive hope that he could take the 

mistakes he had seen made at other universities and 
correct them. He left Wright State in 1972 to serve as the 
president of San Diego University. Finally, in 1977, he 
accepted the presidency of financially failing and barely 
credible Kent State University. 

That, then, is the story of the man who has served as the 
president of this University for the past five years. He is a 
"crisis junkie," a man happiest with a problem to solve and 
a world to change. He certainly changed Kent State, 

When he arrived in SeptemPer of 1977, tents formed a 
city on the campus. They were gone in two months. 
Enrollment was down, the dorms were wild, and the school 
was broke. That was changed in three years, Dr. Golding 
remarks that he had dealt with student unrest both at 
Wright State and at San Diego and that the best method 
for rebuilding a auality campus is a no-nonsense, get back 
to class approach. He has followed this philosophy each 
day of his five years here, 

Does it Pother him that his method of running the 
University has made him less than popular? Yes, it does. 
One man, however, could never give this University all that 
it asks for. What he has given us is the quality education 
behind our diplomas. Kent State is a name which now 
stands for peace in a world Pent upon self-destruction, 
Making this stand almost closed us. Perhaps we will 
someday thank the man, whom few understand, for 
keeping the stand alive.

Town and Campus 

"When you come in," the voice said, "ask for 
Rebel." And I said, "Rebel ... I think I can remember that 
..." So I'm going to the Kent Community Store to talk 
to a guy named Rebel. What in the world do I say to him? 
How about, "Is your name really Rebel?" 

It's really his name, or at least it's what everyone, 
including his mother, calls him. And if I was expecting 
some kind of weirdo- freak, I got disappointed. What I 
found was a very intelligent man with a lot of very 
sound ideas. I was impressed — he made me look like a 

We talked a lot about music because anyone who 
spends that much time with that many records 
automatically qualifies as a minor authority. According to 
Rebel, good music pushes the limits of popular taste; it 
stands on its own without gimmicks or hooks. A good 
album is one he doesn't like the first time he hears it. 
When I asked him for specifics, he was ready. Among his 
favoite artists are Miles Davis and John Coltrane, 
whose After the Rain is the most beautiful song that he 
has ever heard. 

The Kent State students that Rebel comes in contact 
with have been programmed to like only what they 

Photos by Dave Maxwell 

hear frequently , , . good for business, but bad for music. 
He blames radio stations for neglecting their 
responsibility to teach the public to listen to music and for 
neglecting the folk and classical roots of the music 
they do play. 

I was feeling pretty programmed myself at that 
point, so I was glad when we somehow moved on to 
education. Rebel left KSU somewhat short of degrees 
in journalism, psychology, and mathematics, which ought 
to appall me, but he had good reasons. He wanted 
an education and everyone else wanted to know what 
was going to be on the final. He wanted to learn to 
think and everyone else just wanted out. I didn't ask, but I 
don't think he regrets leaving school. 

Rebel may have left Kent State, but he didn't leave 
Kent. I've always had my doubts, but he says it's a 
good place to live . . . lots going on with lots of space for 
quiet. And he credits the University for creating a 
strong sense of community; to Kent State graduates — 
and near graduates — Kent is a special place. They 
stick around and their pasts get mixed up in their presents 
and they could do worse than Rebel has done. 


"It just smells too good in here," Dave said, and I 
had to agree. The place smelled like my house on 
Christmas Eve, which is about the only time my mother 
takes to bake. There's something extremely comforting 
about stepping off Main Street into a room that smells 
like that. And if the lady behind the counter wasn't 
exactly my mother, she did seem very much at home 
in her place of business. 

Donaldine McGuffin, co-owner of the Peaceable 
Kingdom bakery, really is a mother. She is also a speech 
therapist and a teacher and, of course, a baker, but 
inside the shop she assumes the role of full-time 
businesswoman. And business will be business, even at 
the Peaceable Kingdom. In this case, owning your own 
means researching insurance policies and keeping the 
books and sweeping the floor in addition to making and 
baking ten different breads, ten kinds of cookies, and 
thirty kinds of cakes . . . with a minimum of help. Behind the 
floury hands and the apron is a very sharp lady; she 
has to be because even the most natural of foods don't 
grow on trees. 

Don't be disappointed, but they grow on the standard 
market. It is possible, with some persistence, to buy 
water-packed fruit and unrefined flour wholesale. It is also 

possible to find "natural" recipes in common places 
like cookbooks and grandma's recipe file. At this rate, 
who needs the Peaceable Kingdom? But something 
special definitely happens when the recipes and the 
ingredients get together. Sesame-sunflower bread, 
carrot cake, carob cookies . . . even all-natural wedding 
cakes (with fresh flower decoration) — not the kinds 
of things one finds on the shelves at ValuKing. 

Needless to say, fame and fortune are not the 
major rewards of a life dedicated to the ideals of good 
food, good nutrition, and reasonable price. The 
money is enough to help the kids through school and in 
their careers. The working conditions are among the 
most pleasant available. And the advantages of being 
your own boss are, according to Donaldine McGuffin, 
compensation for the minor drawbacks. 

While Dave and I were browsing and sniffing, four 
other customers came and went: two students, a banker, 
and someone's grandmother. They were obviously 
regulars; no one left with less than three loaves of bread. I 
almost felt guilty for all the times I jumped off the bus 
to run in for just one cookie ... but not guilty enough to 
stop doing it. 


It was the middle of November and I hadn't been home all 
semester and I had a French auiz the next day and an English 
baoer to write and three other interviews to do ... on a 
college campus no one complains about pressure because 
everyone else is in the same boat. So I wasn't complaining 
and Frieda didn't know how much good she did when she 
stepped out from behind the counter to hug me. But I 
learned something from our little encounter. Now I know why 
everyone calls her "Mom." 

Frieda Johnson has been serving in the Student Center 
cafeteria for eighteen years. Four years are enough to 
make the average student a little cynical, but time hasn't 
phased Frieda. And she doesn't hesitate to explain that the 
students, cynical or not, are what she enjoys most about her 
job. "Great" is her weakest description of them. When she 
gets excited, they tend to become "great, great, great!" 

Regulars at the second floor cafeteria can understand her 

Photos by Colin Klein 

enthusiasm; Frieda does seem to bring out the best in the 
"me generation." I have seen boys I'd be afraid to meet on 
campus after dark bring her flowers and candy. In return, she 
provides holiday treats and cheer-up cards and, for the real 
pity cases, a big motherly hug. She has even been known to 
bring students to her own home for some authentic mom- 
cooking. Her perennial smile probably has a lot to do with her 
certainty that God wants her at Kent State as badly as the 
students do. 

It's tempting to complain to Frieda about University food, 
but she eats it too. And in general, she thinks it's pretty good. 
Her only complaint is that she can't please all her kids all of 
the time. I have the feeling that a lot of those kids would use 
the second floor cafeteria if nothing on the menu pleased 
them; a few minutes with "Mom" are as nourishing as a week 
of good, balanced meals. 

Downstairs, Woodsy's looks like the kind ot music store I 
frequented in high school when I was still taking piano lessons 
and playing in the Pand. The walls are lined with instruments 
and cases full of sheet music and miscellaneous small 
essentials like guitar picks and drumsticks. Upstairs, 
Woodsy's looks like a little piece of the world I only see at 
concerts and on Wednesday nights at Filthy's. Upstairs, the 
walls are lined with sound equipment: mixers, amplifiers, 
microphones . . . things as far removed from high school 
band as Van Halen is from Wagner. 

The difference between upstairs and downstairs illustrates 
part of the motivation for Woodsy's. Co-owner Paul Braden 
was graduated from Kent State in 1970 with a degree in 
business and an awareness — from experience — that 
popular music was changing. Braden worked his way 
through college, and through the local clubs and dives, 
playing guitar and banjo in a number of bands since 
disbanded but forever dear to musicians in the Kent area. 
Because of those bands, Braden recognized the coming of 
electronic music with its specialized equipment and unique 
demands. For nearly ten years, he has seen to it that 

Woodsy's meets those demands. Another KSU business major 
succeeds in the cold, cruel world ... or, in this case, the 
world of heavy metal. 

"Businessman" is probably not the most suitable title for 
Paul Braden. Although he calls himself a bill collector and 
payer, a repairman, a sometimes teacher, even a janitor, 
"musician" is the first thing that comes to mind, And a 
musician's life is not always glamorous. Woodsy's does deal 
with many of the popular area bands and it does have an 
"outside" business contracting equipment for local 
churches and clubs, but its co-owner spends the majority of 
his working time inside the shop on Water Street providing 
the services that help make Kent so hospitable for other 

This hospitality is important to Braden. He is proud of his own 
raport with customers and of the general feeling of 
community that exists in Kent. The talent, honesty, and 
intelligence that he finds here have kept him away from his 
native Cincinnati for sixteen years. And it seems likely that if 
music changes again, as it is sure to do, Paul Braden will still be 
around making sure that Woodsy's changes with it. 


When you move into Small Group, you learn (among 
other things) that when something breaks, "Vic" fixes it. 
Say, for example, that your closet door falls off, which has 
been known to happen. You leave a work order at the 
desk in the morning, you go to class, and when you come 
home, it's as good as new ... or at least as good as it was 
before. "Vic" has been there. 

During my first few months at Kent State, I would have 
believeb anything anyone told me about "Vic." I certainly 
never saw him, although I felt his presence in the sturdiness 
of my towel racks and the efficiency of my curtain roOs. 
When I finally did meet Vic, I wasn't really surprised by 
what I found. It seems only natural that the benevolent 
"Mr. Fix-it" should assume a sort of father image for the 
Small Group residents who know him. And he can, indeed, 
fix about anything. 

Life without Vic Magyarics is difficult to imagine for those 
who have come to depend upon him, but Vic has spent 
only two years and three months in the University's employ. 
For twenty-six years he served as produce manager for an 

Herb Detnck 
A&P supermarket. He feels no nostalgia for the fresh fruit 
and vegetables, however. When I asked him which job he 
preferred, he replied, "There's no place like Small Group!" I 
shouia explain that his reasons are not entirely noble. Small 
Group dorms have only three floors and the halls, even on 
long wings, are notoriously short; not much walking for the 
local handyman. So when Vic says, "I really like my job ... I 
even wish I had started here earlier," it's not surprising 
when he adds, "... then my salary would be higher, too." 
When he leaves work at 4:30, Vic is a real-life father and 
grandfather. With children ranging in age from eleven to 
twenty-four, it's small wonder that the students he meets 
on the job seem like his own kids. After all, some are almost 
twenty-four . . . and some, according to Vic, act like 
they're eleven. Nevertheless, it's the students that make 
Vic's job worthwhile. After a year or so, one towel rack 
looks a lot like another, but he believes that his association 
with young people keeps him looking — and feeling — 
younger himself. 


In the spring of my freshman year I returned an overdue 
library book without telling anyone that I'd returned it. That 
July I received a little bill for the fine my book had been 
amassing since April. And this year I chanced to meet the 
lady who called in my entire summer's spending money. By 
rights, she should have been at least slightly depraved — 
the kind of person who would enjoy picking the pockets of 
starving students. By realities, she was far from depraved 
and far more than the Library's court clerk. 

Jacquie Deegan's official title is billing supervisor for the 
Kent State Memorial Library. She has been doing the 
paper work and, to some extent, taking the flack naturally 
attracted to her position for nine years. This is not, perhaps, 
the ideal job for a woman who very much enjoys students, 
but Jacquie doesn't complain. Fifty weeks of good, 
conventional work each year pay the bills for two weeks of 
something much more envigorating. 

Jacquie's labor of labor may be a lot of work, but her 
labor of love is enviable. For the past nine years she has 
been developing her skills and collecting her credits as a 
freelance rock photographer for the likes of Genesis, Bill 
Bruford, Steve Hackett, and Tim Curry. Her pictures have 
appeared on album covers for Bruford and Iggy Pop and in 

a number of local and British rock magazines. She has also 
served as the official photographer for Iggy Pop's French 
and American fan clubs. Not exactly the person you 
expected to find behind your University Library's circulation 
desk , . . 

Rock photographers, like most musically-oriented 
people, have roots that they like to acknowledge. 
Jacquie's first concert job was for Genesis in 1973. Lead 
singer Peter Gabriel opened that show dressed as a bat 
and Jacauie has adopted his rather conspicuous motif as 
her own trademark and tribute to the musicians whose 
unparalleled enthusiasm she finds so fascinating. Anyone 
who can spend months on the road living on music can't, 
she insists, be run of the mill. 

Most of Jacauie's life, however, is run of the mill. She likes 
it that way. The "bat lady" isn't into witchcraft or magic, 
although she does study wholistic medicine. And she's 
actually proud to be a townie. Slamming Kent is a favorite 
student pasttime and I have been known to participate. 
But the people who live and work here — both in town 
and on campus — seem to love it and they, after all, are 
the final authorities. 


Living Off Campus 

Sooner or later, most freshmen and sophomores look 
forward to the day when they can say they've done their 
time. They no longer have any obligation to Residence 
Services and they can head out and look for a place of their 

Certainly life off campus has its advantages. Imagine . . . 
no R.A.'s screaming about loud stereos, no security guards 
blue-slipping you for open containers in the halls, and no 
escort or visitation policy. Along with your house or 
apartment also comes a bit more privacy. There isn't as 
much noise seeping through the walls, you're not dodging 
soccer balls or frisbees in the halls, and you usually have no 
problems with midnight fire alarms because someone left his 
toaster plugged in. 

Along with the good must come the bad. There is that 
certain law of averages that guarantees that life won't be a 
bowl of cherries. Living off campus is great until you realize 
that rent has to be paid on a regular basis and not just when 
you happen to have a hundred extra bucks. Once you're 
out of the dorms, you even have to pay Ma Bell a service 
charge on top of the monthly long distance charges. It all 

adds up. 

One of the most difficult tasks of off-campus living is trying 
to keep your dwelling in a livable condition. It used to be easy 
to keep your dorm room clean. You simply dumped all your 
garbage in the laundry room or swept the dust and dirt from 
your floor into the hall for the maids to clean up (not a very 
nice practice, but an efficient one). Now, instead of one 
room to clean up, you have several. The living room is always 
a mess because no one wants to eat in the kitchen. The 
kitchen looks like a dump because everyone cooks, but no 
one has time for the dishes. And the bathroom . . . well, who 
wants to clean a bathroom? 

Although the bad points may seem to outweigh the good 
points, I'll take off-campus any day. I can have parties 
without permits, I don't have to worry about locking my room 
every time I leave it, and there is plenty of room for all the 
comforts of a real home. Like everything else in life, living in a 
house is only as good as you decide to make it, but 
sometimes I wonder how I made it any other way.

No, dirty dishes don't naturally go away by themselves, but when you live 
off campus, you can reward yourself for doing them. Dawn Schulz, a senior 
majoring in business management finishes her chores in time for an evening 
of prime time television (opposite), while Barb Crow, a senior in nursing, 
moves from one job to another (this page, left). And whether you live on 
campus or off, going out is always a good incentive to get your work done, 
as Rae Ann DiBattiste, a senior business management major, apparently 
has (this page, right).

It may seem incongruous to dorm residents, but when you live off campus, 
you don't have to study in your bedroom. In College Towers, junior political 
science major Chris Covey (above) keeps his desk in the living room. And 
when you rent a house with some friends, you don't need a desk at all; 
Barb Whinery, a senior majoring in community health education, can relax 
and curl up on the couch amid a small jungle of plants (opposite). 


Did you or a friend of yours have trouble with a landlord this 
year? If you did you weren't alone. The student volunteers of 
COSO received almost 400 complaints this year, the most 
common type of complaint was that a security deposit was 
unfairly held. There was a complaint from a student who was 
charged eight dollars plus labor to replace four light bulbs. 
There was a complaint in which a student was charged for 
damages to a rug that was due to be replaced, More than 
one student complained that they were charged for 
fumigating fleas from their house when they had never kept a 
pet, and in one case a student checked and found that the 
fumigation company had no record or recollection of 
working on their apartment. In past years COSO has called 
these suspectedly regular security deposit frauds by some of 
the larger landlords "organized crime". 

Another type of complaint that we dealt with regularly 
involved shoddy performance by the landlord. Four 
students had their heat turned off when the landlord didn't 
pay the bill, the same happened in two different places with 
the water bill. Broken appliances, which in Ohio the landlord is 
responsible for fixing, often weren't fixed for months. Many 
of these complaints fell under the authority of the Kent City 
Health Department and were corrected once the student 
finally complained to them. 

One type of complaint that we could do nothing about 
involved students who were unwilling to follow the terms of 
their lease and then wanted to file a complaint. To these 
people we had to explain that tenants have protection 
under the landlord-tenant law only as long as they, the 
tenants, fulfill all their terms of the contract. If they do the 
courts will protect their property rights. If the tenant breaks 
the contract, no matter how "unjust" a contract, then all 
legal protection is gone. The moral here — read your lease 
carefully and if you don't understand any part of the lease, or 
suspect that what the landlord has promised to do isn't in the 
lease, write in a new clause in simple language and both you 
and the landlord initial it. 

A fourth type of complaint centered on harrassment from 
the landlord. Racial discrimination, sexual harrassment, 
drunken and abusive landlords — these are the type of 
complaints least frequently followed up on because the 
tenant would rather move. Our advice — talk to current or 
past tenants before you put down a deposit. 

COSO is just beginning to address problems of off-campus 
living other than landlord-tenant complaints. With ten 
volunteers we have come a long way, but balance in the 
landlord-tenant equation is far from achieved.

Orientation Week 

Colin Klein 

Orientation Week ... an entity in itself. 

The opening of a brand new school year, with its 
introductions to the alien campus, can be as 
rewarding a venture as it is a pain in the neck. For a 
student peer instructor, it is both. This is what I endured 
all those weekends in April for? Oh, I enjoyed the training 
and the people I met, but the idea of getting up at 
7:00 a.m. for a full day of workshops — on Saturday — 
was never too appealing. And then I was expected 
to find a compatible faculty advisor, the person who 
would help me introduce my freshmen to college 
life ... 

Sure. I don't know quite what college life is myself. 
Yeah, I drink beer and cram the night before every exam, 
but these aspects are hardly admirable. Certainly not 
worth introducing to any NEW student. Besides, one picks 
up on the fun things soon enough. 

Training taught me what was worth knowing. By May, I 
knew everything in the training manual. And I knew 
some pretty nifty get-acquainted games, too. But when I 
met my class I wanted twenty eager faces and I got 
the opposite. It was my job to sell the University to them 
and to get them through the first semester, if possible. 
I felt responsible for their FUTURES. And I was swamped 

with forms: religious preference cards, math tests, 
Greeks, intramurals. I had to conduct tours of the city as 
well as the campus. I even impressed my class with a 
tour of TV-2. Then there was scheduling. 

Scheduling is one of the major purposes of 
Orientation Week. Freshmen need classes, neither too few 
or too many. Make sure that they are allowed into the 
class. Make sure that none of their classes overlap. See to 
it that they take some requirements and sign up for 
the right English section. No problem. Except that some 
wanted to take everything. Some wanted to take 
nothing. I wanted to take my life. 

Finally everyone had a schedule. They even had 
alternates . . . just in case, I must have done a pretty 
good job of advising, too, because there were no big 
disasters during registration. I did lose a few students 
whose required classes conflicted with our meeting 
time, and I was sorry to see them go. Really. 

I suppose the most rewarding thing that came out 
of my orientation week experience was a student who 
thanked me and told me how enjoyable I had made 
her week. She could hardly wait for the rest of the

I first heard of Fresh Air in 1977. I was an 
experienced rock music listener and devotee of that 
once-progressive Cleveland station, well-known to us 
all, whose call letters resemPle the name of M&M's candy. 
Slowly that station had been moving to a more 
commercial sound, thus boring my hungry ears. At one 
time it filled a need for progressive music, and by filling 
that need became a success. The program switch, 
however, left a need unfilled. 

This is where WKSU and Fresh Air entered the picture. 
Stumbling to the far left of my dial one evening, I 
found something new and different at 89.7. To the 
experienced Fresh Air listener, I need not explain the 
bliss of King Crimson, Brian Eno, and Gong without 
commercial interruption during those relaxing evening 

hours. Since that first stumPle, I've been in love and my 
ears have been satisfied 

Upon arriving at Kent State, I began working for the 
programming I held so dear. WKSU always welcomes 
time and help from any interested party. Today, I do 
public relations for the Fresh Air program between 
midnight and six. We've gone through some changes in 
programming, but progressive music must progress or 
fall back to the realm of those stations which bombard 
listeners with pimple cream commercials between 
every song. Within its basic format. Fresh Air continues to 
expose the Akron-Canton-Cleveland-Youngstown area 
to little-known U.S. bands and European imports, Keep 
your eyes and ears on us . . .

From studios deep within the Music and Speech 
Building . . . Good evening. Welcome to NewsWatch 2, 
the daily evening newscast for the students, Py the 
students, Monday through Friday . . . Let's go Pehind the 
scenes. Up to WKSU, third floor. It's mid-afternoon. The 
clicking and clacking of typewriters is filtering out into the 
hall. Enter. The newsroom. Activity reigns. "Has anyone 
covered . . . what's happening in sports? . . . weather? . . . 
cute outfit, going on air like that? ha, ha" A dull 
moment never exists. Some frustration at one typewriter, 
humor at another, productivity at a third. Some days 
require a few more Peads of sweat than others. Put the 

5:30 and 6:30 news scripts are usually in by 4:00 . . . 
give or take a few minutes. 

Camaraderie develops . , , in the control room 
between the switcher, audio, director, assistant director; 
in the studio between the camera people. It reveals 
itself through little things such as the floor person making 
faces at the anchor person or the sports reporter 
winking at the special reporter. The mistakes and bloopers 
are shared as are the accomplishments and words of 
encouragement. Sometimes it's hard to imagine TV2 as a 
lab for some telecom class, but that's what it is.

Volunteer Ambulance Service 

As members of the KSU Volunteer Ambulance Service, 
we provide emergency medical care to students, faculty, 
and visitors on campus. We started ten years ago when a 
Kent State student, Jim Levine, felt a service such as ours 
was a necessity. Through him and others, the first 
ambulance service in the country to be run by students 
was formed. This makes us quite unique. 

At the Volunteer Ambulance Service we have both an 
ambulance and a non-emergency vehicle. The 
ambulance has a crew of three people, all of whom are 
certified Ohio Emergency Medical Technicians. The non- 
emergency vehicle is a car used for transports and training 
newer volunteers. The ambulance averages three runs a 
day and the car averages five runs. 

One of our greatest attributes is the training that we 
provide. We require ninety hours of the emergency victim 

care course for EMT certification. This doesn't include the 
additional hours of practice, which are important because 
100% is the only passing grade on the final practical exam. 

The membership of the Volunteer Ambulance Service is 
mostly students from various majors who carry a full load of 
classes. All of us are volunteers with many having other jobs 
and belonging to other organizations. Our service is open 
twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, so we like to 
encourage new volunteers. 

Although the work and time involved may discourage 
some from joining, the results are worth it. As members of 
the Volunteer Ambulance Service, we expect only the 
highest quality of care from our people. And with good 
leadership (Tim Clemens as coordinator and Tom Gall as 
chief of operations), we have accomplished this goal.

When you spend a great many virtually unrewarded hours each week 
looking after bruised and broken human bodies and. occasionally, touch 
and go human lives, do you try to stay humble or do you feel like a god? 
Most of us will never understand the dilemma because the only body we 
look after (or over) is our own. For the members of Kent State's Volunteer 
Ambulance Service, however, the conflict is real. So much of their 
volunteer time is spent on the mundane things. Sophomore journalism 
major Greg Schalk and freshman business major Chris Malcolm check 
emergency equipment in the ambulance (opposite) and in the squad 
room, Chris Malcolm, Tim Clemens, a senior majoring in criminal justice, 
and Brian Gray, a sophomore in secondary education, kill the time 
between runs (this page, right). The work they train for is sporadic, but it 
does come. Greg Schalk, Brian Gray, and R.J. Garono, a senior biology 
major, work together on a leg injury that is among the more typical of the 
accidents they deal with (this page, left).

Fashion Institute 

For your general information, ninety percent of New 
York's Fashion Institute of Design class of 1981 secured jobs in 
the garment industry before they were graduated. For your 
further information, that industry is the fourth largest in the 
nation. Now, before you turn back to your very practical but 
somewhat routine accounting and computer science, 
consider this . . . 

Within the next three to five years, and if all goes well, Kent 
State University will become the second institution in the 
country to offer a college-level curriculum for fashion design 
and its affiliated professions. These affiliates include 
advertising, merchandising, photography, art, textile design, 
even packaging and labeling — a little something for 
almost everyone. Four years of study in this new program, 
currently referred to as the school of fashion design and 
merchandising and related museum, will lead to a bachelor 
of fine arts and a very good chance at all those jobs that are 
going to FIT graduates. 

The "related museum" mentioned in the school's title is a 
bonus for Kent students and residents not specifically 
interested in fashion design or merchandising . To be located 
in Rockwell Hall, the museum will house a collection of period 
and ethnic costumes, furniture, and other pieces arranged 

in historically accurate settings. The collection has obvious 
interest to students of art, theater, history, ethnic studies, 
and sociology, and roughly one third of the costumes will be 
available for detailed examination by design students. 

The founders of the new school are Shannon Rodgers and 
Jerry Silverman, the gentlemen of Seventh Avenue. In 
addition to their three million dollar collection, the two have 
donated $100,000 in seed money to get the program 
started. Five million more dollars are being sought both locally 
and nationally from private and corporate sources to 
augment this gift. Rodgers, a native of Newcomerstown, 
Ohio, has designed costumes for Broadway and Hollywood 
and for Jerry Silverman, Inc . , Silverman's successful ready-to- 
wear fashion house. Both men were made adjutant 
professors and will participate in the instruction of design and 
marketing courses. 

According to KSU president Brage Golding, the Fashion 
Institute will be "a splendid opportunity for Kent State to be 
cast in a positive new light, as a major university with a 
difference." Sounds tempting . . . ready to change your

The Libe . . . someone told me that it was the fourth- 
largest open stack library in Ohio. I'm impressed, really, 
and I appreciate having access to the books, but I 
have to admit that I seldom go above the second floor. 
Everyone calls it the social second floor, but I swear I 
go there to study; it just takes a lot more discipline than, 
say, the ninth floor. 

I have disciplined myself not to read magazines. Writer's 
Digest is my downfall. I used to be able to convince 
myself that it could help me write papers. Wrong. In three 
years all Writer's Digest has helped me with is 
procrastination. I have also disciplined myself not to 
scream when I can't read magazines . . . when the 
one article from the one back issue that I have to have to 
support my thesis is going home in someone's back 

I have disciplined myself not to take a window seat 
— at least, not every day. The Student Center plaza 
amazes me. If I'm inside studying, all of my friends are 
out there having the best time of the semester. How dare 
they?! I stay indignant until they all come inside to 

disturb me. One drawback to the second floor is that is 
doesn't offer very good cover. 

One semester I took a physics course that had a 
computer-assisted review and it was second floor 
heaven. Between the terminals and tape recorders I've 
developed an incredible sense of mastery over the 
mechanical mind. Machines do have minds, too. Once I 
had an hour before class to listen to my French tape 
and every single recorder insisted on playing both sides of 
the tape at once . . . who needs a mother? Lately, 
I've been doing the tapes at least a week in advance. 

The best feature of the second floor is its 
occupants. Half of the people are foreign and the other 
half are football players (and then there's the blonde 
over by the window). No one whispers and everyone talks 
at once, but it doesn't matter because you can't 
understand what anyone's saying. The mumble combined 
with the buzz of the lights makes white noise that's 
even better than static on the radio — the perfect 
accompaniment to any research paper.

Even the fourth-largest open stack library in Ohio has its drawbacks 
and the greatest of these is this: the book is there, you know it is, but 
where to begin the search? Cora Raver, a freshman majoring in 
deaf education, begins at the beginning . . . with the card catalog 
(opposite). Another student turns his back on the back issues on the 
second floor (right) while somewhere within this tower of brick and glass 
(above), the illusive object of the search awaits its hunters. 


The Kent Student Center may easily be the 
most all-purpose building on campus. While Cyndy 
Hannah, a sophomore office administration 
major. Tim Bowen, a junior in management 
science, and Becky Armstrong, a sophomore 
majoring in criminal justice, take a break 
downstairs in the Rat (above), a patron of the 
Music Listening Center makes use of those facilities 
for some serious napping (right). The first floor 
phones are always in use, as junior marketing 
major Pam Echols and two friends can attest 
(opposite left). And sophomore aerospace major 
John Loughry puts the first floor snack bar to 
its most popular use (opposite right).

Student Center 

The problem with the Student Center is that it's too 
big to be noticed. You almost have to pass through if 
you're in the vicinity — drift in a door, out a door on 
the other side; up the stairs, through a line. It's harder to 
go around than it is to cut through. 

Consequently, the Student Center is underrated. It 
doesn't have a specific function so no one gives it a 
second thought. Get rid of it, however, and you eliminate 
at least three of the most essential places on campus. 
Realistically, you could live without the cafeteria and the 
TV lounge and the art gallery. There are other 
bookstores around; there are other gamerooms and 
snack bars and offices. 

But consider this: if something happened to the Student 
Center and you didn't have twenty cents for a stamp, 
you couldn't pay your phone bill. No ticket booth, no 
check to Ohio Bell, no long distance, no checks period 
because no calling home to ask for money. And you 
would probably never hear from your old friends, 
either, because they always call instead of writing and 
without the Student Center, you wouldn't have a 

Next, get rid of the Student Center and you get rid 

of its fountain. Where in the world are you going to meet 
your friends? You can't say "meet me at the bus 
stop" or "meet me in the library" because what does that 
mean and besides it's no fun. Nothing is more specific 
than "meet me at the Student Center fountain," and 
nothing is more refreshing than waiting there while the 
little splashes of water soak the back of your sweatshirt. 

Finally, and most horribly, without the Student 
Center there would be no row of windows to lounge in 
front of and watch the University go by. The front of 
the second floor of the Student Center is the second best 
place on campus for a nap (next to your bed) and 
the first best place to look like you're studying when you 
aren't. It's also a very good place to find some 
solitude in the middle of a crowd because once you find 
an empty couch to sit on, no one is allowed to sit 
down beside you (unwritten but observed University law). 

It should be obvious at this point that without the 
Kent Student Center, life at the University would grind to a 
halt. But if you need further proof, could there be an 
Oldies without the Rathskellar? No Oldies, no Wednesday 
night, the week never ends . . .

Homecoming Weekend 

Dennis Monbarren 

The road you choose to follow after college may 
very well take you far from your friends, your family, your 
home. Somehow, no matter where that road leads, 
you carry with you some part of the past you left behind. 
Traditions are not guickly forgotten, and perhaps 
that's what makes any homecoming special. 

"Tradition — KSU Style" was the theme for 
Homecoming 1981, held the weekend of October 9-11. 
Homecoming itself is one of Kent State's few steady 
traditions; the Alumni Office simply decided this year it 
would be something special. Alumni Director Anita 
Herington was responsible for an organized program of 
events which drew participants from current and 
former Kent State classes. Among these events were an 
all-campus toga party, a bonfire and pep rally, the 
crowning of King Chris Sopko and Queen Millie DelValle, a 
"superstars" competition pitting alumni against 
students and faculty, and a Homecoming Dance featuring 
music by the jazz lab band and Oldies — FM. 

Dennis Monbarren 

A new tradition was established with the first autumn 
Homecoming Parade. A Saturday morning procession 
of floats, bands, homecoming personalities, and vintage 
automobiles wound its way through campus to 
the greetings of a nostalgic audience. 

For many, the highlight of the weekend was a 
performance by the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders during 
half-time of the Homecoming game. The thirty-two 
dancers brought excitement and controversy to their very 
first Ohio appearance, but only the excitement 
remained after the Golden Flashes raced to a 31-10 
victory over Northern Illinois. 

Alumni parents, students, townspeople, friends of the 
University ... all gathered to sort through old 
memories and collect new ones. They plunged into a very 
special Kent State Homecoming and emerged, when 
the weekend was over, with the feeling that they had, 
indeed, been welcomed back.

African Community Theatre Arts Program 

Mbari Mbayo ... in Yoruba, the words mean "I know my 
heritage and therefore am happy." To a very great 
extent, black men and women in America claim a 
common heritage. They share images of alienation and 
suffering, slavery and survival, creativity and celebration 
accumulated during the many years and miles that 
separate them from their African origins. These images can 
be painful, but to deny them is to deny the importance — 
the power — of the black experience. At Kent State, this 
power is conserved by the African Community Theatre Arts 

ACTAP does not concern itself with Broadway or other 
more popular forms of modern theater; it does not 
concern itself with stereotypes. The audiences which gather 
in Franklin Hall's Mbari Mbayo theaters and in community 
centers and theaters throughout northeastern Ohio witness 
a drama that has grown from the long span of black 
history. Often this drama is ritualized, including elements of 
music, poetry, dance, folklore, and religion. The work of 
the Mbari Mbayo players is a constant labor to assert the 
cultural value of these elements and to educate a public 
generally deprived of such experiences in their 

Black drama in general makes demands of its audience; 
it is seldom a passive form of entertainment. Athol Fugard's 
Boesman and Lena, for example, requires an 
acauaintance with the issues and emotions of South 
Africa's apartheid system. El Hajj Malik, by N.R. Davidson, 
requires an understanding of the values and the tragedy 
of Malcom X. Even the dramatization of a folktale, such as 
Stagolee, or a musical review, such as Ebony Woman, 
demands an acceptance of theater which is created by 
and primarily for black men and women. When this theater 
succeeds, however, it transcends the bounds of race, 
becoming a fascinating study of a culture vital in its own 
right and vital to the quality of American culture in general. 

As suggested by its title, ACTAP is very much a 
community effort. Artistic director Francis Dorsey finds that 
the men and women of the surrounding area bring an 
added dimension of enthusiam and experience to his 
productions which is difficult to find among students. The 
company tours freauently, and has appeared in Akron, 
Canton, Youngstown, and as far east as Philadelphia. In 
these and other towns, proceeds are often donated to 
such programs as Upward Bound and the Phoenix Project.

Hey, Kent State! It's Wednesday night. Two days down, 
but two to go. Do you need to relax? Or blow off some 
steam for an hour or two? Well, you're in luck . . . it's 
Wednesday night and Oldies is at the Rat. 

For many of us who became "Oldies regulars" during the 
past years, our Wednesday nights out were in an escape 
from the occasional pressures of classes, papers, and 
exams. But the tradition of KSU's Oldies night is a great deal 
more than that. It's people. Friends, old and new, making 
some memories together. 

Sometimes the nights are quiet. The music is low and the 
tables of people converse over a beer or two. Just as 
often, the Rathskeller is packed to standing room only. The 
music blares and the dance floor is crammed with bodies 
moving to everything from "Shout" to "The Ballad of the 
Beverly Hillbillies." 

Over the years, the Oldies show has attracted campus 
visitors to the Rat, some of them renowned personalities 

like Gary Lewis and Ralph Nader. Once even Richard Nixon 
was seen drumming his fingers to Crosby, Stills, and Nash's 
"Ohio" — but that was on Halloween. 

While the basic core of the program remains essentially 
the same with music of the fifties, sixties, and seventies 
predominating, disc jockeys Rich Freisenhengst and Joe 
Matuscak tailor their show to fit the mood of the crowd 
by playing mostly reauests. Like the night several men 
requested "The Stripper" because they wanted to (and 
did) perform. "Zorba the Greek" has added flavor to a few 
toga parties. And let's face it, where else but the gym can 
you waltz, polka, or Charleston? 

Wednesday night Oldies at the Rat . . . anything goes. 
But it's probably the lunacy and fun-loving spirit of fellow 
students (sometimes initiated and always encouraged by 
the often outrageous Rich and Joe) that we'll remember

Independent film, experimental film, underground film, 
avant garde film, weird film, disgusting film, 
incomprehensible film . . . these are the technical and 
popular terms used to describe films made by a single person. 
The filmmaker is director, cameraman, editor, writer, 
sometimes set builder and actor all in one. He uses his own 
money and energy to make some visual cinematic 
statement, which he hopes will reach at least some fraction 
of his audience. 

These films vary in content and length and are often 
programmed in anthology shows on Tuesday nights at 
Filmworks. One evening, for example, the audience was 
treated to a ten-minute black and white-stripe flicker-film 
with a Terry Riley sound track followed by an hour-long color 
artist-as-acrobat allegorical epic when New York 
filmmakers were programmed with filmmakers from 

In 1981 Filmworks was able to bring to campus an 

extensive series of films by independent artists, The top 
twelve hours of the Ann Arbor Film Festival were presented, 
as was the work of six independent filmmakers and a 
number of KSU students. Other major film events included a 
week-long science fiction festival and, of course, the usual 
dose of old and new European and Hollywood cult films and 

Many of the students and townspeople who attend 
Filmworks shows in Ritchie Hall suggest titles of films they 
would like to see in the future. These titles and the films 
suggested by the Filmworks members are combined to form 
evenings of unique and varied viewing. The dollars which 
customers pay at the door provide only a fraction of the 
cost of such programming. Additional funding is provided by 
the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ohio Arts Council, 
and the Office of the Vice President.

The staff of Filmworks includes graduate assistant Mark L. Hughes and 
instructor Steve Schuler (opposite left) and Professor Richard Myers 
(opposite right), who coordinates the programming. During many of the 
films these men are responsible for, the audience reaction is fully as diverting 
as the image on the screen (above). 



Home . . . it's a pleasant and comfortable place to 
live, but most of all, home is an atmosphere of friendship, 
security, and love. Living in a sorority house provides a 
home away from home for sorority women. By sharing 
experiences in a common environment, sorority 
members grow as individuals and develop lasting, lifelong 

Home for the Delta Gamma's is at 202 South Lincoln 
Street. Twenty-three girls actually live in the House, 
but all sixty members consider it home. The Delta Gamma 
House is the center of activity for the sorority. Chapter 
meetings are held on Sunday nights to dicuss business and 
to plan events for the semester. Past events have 
included building a third place float for homecoming and 
sponsoring the DG Tee-off. The Tee-off is a golf 
tournament held annually with all proceeds going towards 
our philanthropy, Sight Conservation and Aid to the 
Blind. Other activities include inviting the alumnae's 
children to carve pumpkins with us for Halloween and 
inviting our parents to several functions during Parents' 
Weekend. And of course there are several social 
events throughout the year, usually held with fraternities, 


Colin Klein 

and once a semester, we have a formal dance. 

For the residents, the sorority house provides a 
comfortable atmosphere for studying, watching TV, or 
just having fun. Among the appealing features of house 
living are meals prepared by our cook, Pearl. Five 
days a week, DG's sit down to a formal dinner with our 
house mother, Mom Olsen. Mom O's warmth, kindness, 
and friendly guidance are much appreciated by the 
sisters living in and out of the house. 

Most important are the special moments and memories 
that result from strong and lasting friendships. Sorority 
living enhances the closeness of friends and the meanings 
of sisterhood. A sorority house is so much more than a 
place to stay during the semester . . . it's a special place, 
a place to call home.

My typical day at the Delt House begins between 
eight and nine in the morning. I have no need for an alarm 
clock or any conventional wake up devices; my loving 
brothers take care of this for me. They seem to have an 
informal game — or should I say contest — called 
"Who Can Get Huey Up With The Least Amount Of Bodily 
Harm." To date, I've been serenaded, prodded with a 
spear, and physically wrestled out of bed by the maniacs. 
They must love the way I curse, throw shoes, and 
threaten their lives. 

Rousted out of my sleep by my brothers, I stumble 
across the hall for a morning shower . . . but no hot water 
here. And I thought girls used a lot of water! A guick 
shave, a comb through the hair, and I'm out for another 
day in Kent (the details are purely academic). 

When the daily ritual of survival at KSU is complete, I 
head back to the house for an evening of study and 
hard work. The great advantage to studying at the house 
is that there is always something interesting happening 
to keep you from studying. One Thursday evening I was 
studying in the living room with one of my brothers and 

we counted five girls passing through to use our John and 
one drunken brother following them upstairs on his 
hands and knees . . . literally. We discussed every possible 
subject to avoid our books, but evenings do pass and 
in the end we somehow finished our work despite the 

Sometimes study discussions turn into late night bull 
sessions. If a brother has a problem, we all sit down 
and hash it out of him. Topics range from the past through 
the future. At times, we just tell tales. The only 
problem with a bull session is that once you start, you 
can't stop (especially with eight or ten brothers 
waiting in line for center stage). 

But I'm strong; I can shoot the bull all night. It saves 
me from a brutal awakening in the morning. I can take 
the cold showers and I can take the tests, even after 
evenings of borderline studying. Living in a fraternity house 
has been the best thing in my life and I wouldn't trade 
my experiences for anything.

Handicapped Students 

Chris Russell 

I am a disabled transfer student from Cuyahoga 
Community College. I have lived with my parents for nearly 
twenty years. I transferred for a number of reasons, and two 
of them were to gain some independence and to further my 
studies in journalism. 

Well, I'm here and on my own, but I didn't expect 
independence to be this rough! I'm not complaining, so 
don't get me wrong. I just took a lot of things that my parents 
did for me for granted. However, I wanted to be 
independent and see how much I could do for myself ... on 
my own. 

Living away from home and being in control of your own life 
for the first time is a great feeling. I was never in control 
before. As I said earlier, there was always someone to take 
care of what was hard for me to do. At Kent State, 

Chris Russell 

handicapped student attendants try to solve that problem, 
but they can't all the time. The attendants that we hire are 
students also, and they have their own studies to keep up 
with. And the whole idea behind coming to school for each 
of us is independence. To put it another way, we have to 
break away from our parents and start our own lives. 
Determination is especially important when you are 
disabled. It is so easy to let someone else do the work that 
seems too hard . It took a lot of determination for me to come 
to Kent State, a lot of courage to transfer from Cuyahoga 
Community College, which was like a home away from 
home. It was especially hard to give up the security of my 
family and friends, but I decided that it was time to start my 
own life. And if I fail, there will be nobody to blame but myself. 

— Brian Skinner 


Campus Bus Service 

"Attention all passengers and drivers, it you'll please 
check your watches, the exact time is 6:25. " The driver of the 
nurse's shuttle to Akron reaches for his watch, puts his bus in 
gear, and oegins another day for the Campus Bus Service. In 
a half hour, a fleet of eighteen transit buses will follow the first 
on seven fixed routes and several regular charter runs, 
offering cheap, convenient transportation to the University 
and community. 

The Campus Bus Service, created in 1967 to alleviate 
parking and traffic problems, is unique in that it employs 
operators and supervisors who are all KSU students. Any 
student without a traffic violation in the past two years is 
eligible to operate a full-sized transit coach and receive the 
best pay on campus. Those students who pass the rigorous 
test and fifty-hour training course become part of a tight- 
knit team of drivers ana supervisors and a very visible part of 
campus life. 

In addition to the drivers, some students work under and 
around the buses as maintenance workers and mechanics. 
Students also man the CBS control room as supervisors, 
monitoring the buses while they are on the road. Drivers are 
in constant contact with the control room and may call in 
disruptions and accidents which require re-routing. The CBS 
control room also governs the movement of the 
Hanaicapped Student Transportation Service, which serves 
Kent State's disabled students. 

Memories of Kent will always include the drivers and 
coaches of the Campus Bus Service. By the time the last 
campus loop driver parks his coach behind the garage at 
12:30 each night, 18,000 passengers will have stepped on a 
bus to the drivers' friendly greetings. In the course of a year, 
over 31,000 passengers will take advantage of the most 
extensive campus transportation service in Ohio.

Chris Heywood. a senior geography major, is one of the student mechanics 
who works behind the scenes at the bus garage (opposite). Driver Dale Firm, 
another senior majoring in computer science, spends a few moments of 
free time in the CBS control room, located in Moulton Hall (above left). 


The Campus Bus Service is a mixed blessing. In February, 
anything that keeps you outside waiting is of dubious value. 
And anything that keeps you from walking in May is worse. If 
you're late for class, you can count on missing the last bus you 
could catch; the faster you run, the longer it waits, taunting 
you only to pull away from the stop just as you arrive. 
Understanding the schedule is a major accomplishment, 
and manipulating your own schedule to comply with it is 
harder. People have been known to swear at buses and 
denounce the entire system. 

BUT, the advantages of CBS far outweigh the occasional 
inconveniences. On a rainy day or a snowy day or a day 
when you have five classes in a row and three books for 
each class, those advantages are obvious. When your 
mother's birthday is coming up and you're looking for 
something more than bookstore presents or when you need 
groceries and can't pay Eastway deli prices, the East and 
West Mains are godsends. And if you want to take a nice long 
vacation, there's always the mysterious North Kent route. 

In addition to the obvious advantages, however, are the 
little bonuses you enjoy every time you get on a bus. The first 

"college man" I ever fell "in love" with, for example, was a 
bus driver. I rode his campus loop every afternoon, and it 
was the high point of my day. There's just something about a 
man (or a woman, I suppose) in uniform . . . Even if the driver 
does nothing for you, you can get all the close physical 
contact you need for a month from your fellow passengers 
on a crowded bus. And if the bus isn't so crowded that you 
couldn't move if you wanted to, then bus surfing is one of the 
most challenging sports on campus. It takes a lot of courage 
to let go of the hand rail for the first time, especially on a stop 
and go campus loop or a bumpy stadium route, but the 
improvement in your equilibrium is worth the embarassment 
of your few initial stumbles. 

Kent State wouldn't be Kent State without buses. 
Learning to live with them is as much a part of the college 
experience as learning to live in a dorm or to stay awake at 
7:45 in the morning. And learning to cope should also leave 
you with two of the most important qualities you will ever 
develop: patience, and a well-tested sense of humor.

May 4, 1981 

The years of legal controversy surrounding the May 
4 tragedy have ended, but the search for an appropriate 
commemoration continues, and it has not been easy. 
Some feel that May 4 should promote the political causes 
of the day while others stress a more historical 
perspective on the 1970 events. Many prefer to forget 
the entire episode. 

Alison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer, and William 
Schroeder were killed and nine others wounded by 
the Ohio National Guard during a demonstration 
protesting the escalation of the Vietnam War into 
Cambodia. For many Americans, May 4 was the day the 
war came home. For Kent State University, the 
eleventh anniversary of that day was a pivotal one which 
may well determine the way we will view May 4 in 
years to come. 

The May 4 Task Force, the Faculty Senate May 4 
Planning Committee, and the Center for Peaceful Change 
worked together in 1981 to plan commemorative 

activities which would be both informative and 
meaningful. The resulting program attracted students 
with a genuine desire to learn from and reflect upon the 
tragedy. Many of these students had already been 
moved by the NBC television drama "Kent State," shown 
in February. After the movie was aired, a spontaneous 
rally drew nearly 400 to the Commons where participants 
held hands and prayed in memory of Alison, Jeffrey, 
Sandra, and William. 

Commemorative activities included the traditional 
candlelight vigil where tears flowed freely in the 
atmosphere of sincerity which prevailed. Students also 
had the opportunity to learn from a panel discussion 
focusing on the accuracy of the "Kent State" film. 
The Faculty Senate's offerings included a speech by 
noted anthropologist Dr. Mary Catherine Bateson and 
a commemorative performance of Bach's "Mass in B 
Minor" by the Kent State Chorale and Sinfonia.

At noon on Monday, May 4, almost 1500 sunburnt 
spectators gathered on the Commons to clap and sway 
with Neil Young's "Ohio," performed by student Ken 
Durr. They listened intently to keynote speaker Rev. John 
P. Adams of the United Methodist Church who helped 
raise more than $800,000 for legal battles and who 
stressed the importance of putting May 4 in 
perspective so as to learn from past experiences and 
mistakes. Jane Fleiss and Charley Lang, who portrayea 
Alison Krause and her boyfriend, Barry Levine, in "Kent 
State" also spoke, explaining how their lives were 
affected by their involvement in the movie. Two Kent 
State freshmen. Ward Herst and Chris Allomado, 
rounded out the program by discussing the implications of 
May 4 for today's society. 

For students who were drawn to the Commons out of 
curiosity and for those with a sincere desire to pay 
respect to the four who were killed, it was a memorable 
afternoon. Participants and spectators alike were left 
with an image of a day whose significance for Kent State 
and the entire nation must not be forgotten.

The Numbers Band . . enough said. This year they play Thursday, Friday, 
and Saturday nights at JB's, but they have been together since 1970, 
attracting a following that extends well beyond the current crop of Kent 
students and townies. The numbers, by the way, are not a date or 
someone's measurements; they are a traditional lucky combination in the 
time-honored numbers game. The band's rhythm and blues-dominated 
music is available on record as well as live. Their first album, "Jimmy Bell's 
Still in Town," will be joined by a second release in the spring of 1982.

There's nothing special about going out on the 
weekenO. On any given Saturday night, any given Kent 
State student is very probably downtown (unless he took 
his suitcase and went home). But the bars are open on 
weeknights, too, and they have an endless number of 
schemes for attracting the serious out of the library and the 
lazy out of the Oorms. 

TuesOay night is Wet T-shirt night at the Krazy Horse 
Lounge. Three to five contestants compete in the five 
semi-final rounds for a place in the final dripoff and a grand 
prize of $500. The male eauivalent of this spectacle is the 
five-week Baa Buns contest, to be heia when the dance 
floor dries off. 

Across the street at the Robin Hood, Wednesday night is 
the Hot Legs contest, in which men and women compete 
for a spring break vacation in Florida. At Filthy McNasty's, 
Wednesday is College I.D. night, ana the crowO on the 
floor and at the bar attests to the popularity of free 
admission and cheap beer. 

Ray's and the Loft compete for the mellow weeknight 
crowd. Pizza ana chili, drink specials, and the jukebox are 
the only gimmicks, but they seem to be enough for fans of 

Bob Sorino 

a quiet evening away from the books. 

And Friday night, which is really the weekend, is Happy 
Hour everywhere. Free popcorn and 25c pizza at the Loft, 
live music at the Hood, and cheap drinks everywhere get 
the evening off to an early start. At Filthy's, the only bar 
without a Happy Hour, Friday is Great White North Night in 
honor of Second City's Bob and Doug Mckenzie. The 
weekly beer-hunter contest usually sees the famous cheap 
drink poured on rather than in some unsuspecting victim. 

Of course, there are other places to go. Students have 
been known to forsake downtown Kent for the more 
sophisticated urban nightlife of Cleveland or Akron. For 
those whose only transportation is provided by CBS and 
Nike, however, the Tree City provides a full week's worth of 
widely varieO and usually unpredictable nights out. 

The proximity of Eastway Center's Loose Caboose gives it a home court 
advantage over downtown and the absence of high beer is of little 
concern to the complex's largely underclass residents (above) Those 
who make the two block's trip off campus to Filthy's on Wednesday nights 
can "rock to Risque," the house band lead by singer Dave Brooks 
(opposite page. left). And at the Loft, any night is a good night for pizza 
and a pitcher shared with a few good friends (opposite page, right).

All organizations which participated in the Groups 
section of the 1982 Chestnut Burr were automatically 
considered in a competition for the most creative photo. 
The winning shots in this competition were chosen Py Lisa 
Schnellinger and Gus Chan, co-editors of the 1980 
Chestnut Burr. Gus is currently employed as a 
photographer for the Ravenna Record-Courier and does 
some independent work for magazines and the wire 
services. Lisa is a reporter for the Warren Tribune 
Chronicle. As previously stated, photos were judged on 
the general criterion of "creativity," Put each of the two 
winners displays a different aspect of this quality. Black 
Aesthetics was chosen as the first place organization 
because its pose expresses the concept of " artists in 
motion." The Kent Dance Association received the 
second place award for its novel use of the typical 
aancers' environment.

Delta Gamma 

Delta Gamma is a sorority of sisters 
sharing close feelings and a lot of fun. 
The sisters of Delta Gamma enjoy 
being together, whether at frat 
parties, formals, rush parties, or at 
home in their cozy house. The sisters 
can also be found working with their 
philanthropy: Sight Conservation and 
Aid to the Blind and Grants and Loans. 
An Annual Golf Tournament, 
Operation Eye Alert, and volunteer 
reading for the blind are just a few of 
the activities held to support this 
philanthropy. Delta Gamma is 
believing, caring, sharing, giving, 
offering, hoping.

Alpha Xi Delta 

From accounting to 
education, nursing to 
telecommunications, each 
Alpha Xi Delta is one of a kind. 
Whether her interests are 
swimming or field hockey, 
gymnastics or tennis, each 
Alpha Xi Delta contributes her 
talents. Throughout the year, 
members pull together to 
consistently succeed in 
scholastics and in KSU's annual 
Greek Week. Many members 
are active in honoraries and 
their advisor is Dr. Casale, 
dean of the Honors College. 
Most important is that 
everyone, no matter who she 
is, makes Alpha Xi Delta a 
sorority to be proud of.

Alpha Epsilon Phi has only been at Kent State for a short time, but we've already left 
our mark on campus: you can't miss us in our green jackets. AEPhi offers a lot to a girl 
looking into sororities, including leadership abilities, self-improvement and discipline, and 
lifetime friendship. Our philanthropic project is the Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Israel. 
In addition to this serious concern, however, we also have fun socializing with our 
friends, with other Greeks, and within our own group. We're small ... for now, but we're

Staff Portraits 

When preparing for the production of a book this size, one comes upon 
many dilemmas. Beyond the obvious problems of coverage and content, 
more subjective areas emerge. At what level should this book be done? 
We are a university not that different from any other, a place for higher 
education. Yet having reviewed other yearbooks from across the 
country and heard the comments of various times and places, my fears 
were confirmed, there is still an epidemic of visual illiteracy in the general 
population during an age which has seen great advancement in other 

Would anyone notice or care if we put together 360 pages of groups 
and mug shots, filling every lost inch of space? Well, I couldn't live with 
myself if I knew we didn't produce the best quality publication we possibly 
could under the circumstances. There's never enough time, but I'm 

I have received my degree in art and Barb is an English major — a bit of 
a change for a publication with such a heavy journalistic tradition. We 
wanted to make reading this book a personal experience; people read 
enough impersonal newpapers and magazines. This, we feel is more like 
an autobiography by many different authors. Let's just hear what the 
people involved have to say for themselves, keeping their words and their 
personalities intact. 

Each year, each class starts from the beginning ... a constant 
repetition. Some feel that a yearbook should reflect this repetition. But as 
anyone who has seen past Chestnut Burrs knows, each is a bit different 
from the preceding year's and each represents a constant 
metamorphosis. We believe that this is as it should be: maintaining the 
good things, borrowing here and there from the past, adding new things, 
creating something in its own way unique. In a university this size it's 
impossible to do all and see all; someone or something just as interesting 
always gets left out in the cold in the creating process. Something is 
always going to be neglected, at least temporarily. 

It's been a great experience putting out a professional publication with 
the best photographers at Kent State (and many other places, for that 
matter) and such a fine staff. My personal thanks to all. And to you, the 
reader, I hope you've enjoyed this book as much as we have enjoyed 
bringing it to you 

This is Kent State. Now that we're all educated, let's go out and make 
the world a better place, shall we?
